When I read that jazz musicians are involved and hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar was a major source of inspiration, I wondered what Blackstar, which was released on the day of the white star's 69th birthday, would sound like. Unclassifiable musician, the legendary vocalist and multi-instrumentalist already accustomed us to musical changes from one album to the other and from one character to the other. For his new offering, the English chameleon returns to the eclecticism that grabbed our attention in Outside.
